The $250 million development includes various food and beverage offerings as well as an extensive list of amenities in the expansive entertainment district including shops and restaurants. Patrons can place wagers by visiting one of their three betting windows or one of the kiosks located throughout the casino floor while those who want to enjoy themselves without risk have plenty for them too!

Canada is now able to offer single-event sports betting after the Senate successfully passed Bill C-218, without amendment. The Canadian Gaming Association celebrated this milestone as a major victory for the industry and provided statements of encouragement before beginning work with provincial partners on offering these types of wagers across Canada.
In an effort to legalize single-event sports betting, the Canadian Gaming Association has been working for more than 10 years and Bill C-218 was able to benefit from a groundswell of stakeholder support.
The passage is about the regulation of sports betting and how it is a way to help bring back gambling in Canada. The CGA has been working towards this for years, but due to COVID-19 shutdowns they were unable to get anything done until now.
